Admin feedback:
100% found the supporting materials helpful in setting up the RDF Planner for their institution
60% think it is likely or very likely that their institution will continue to use the RDF Planner
35 ‘researcher’ users completed the survey
80% of users found the RDF Planner useful or very useful
88.6% found the RDF Planner straightforward or intuitive to use
91.4% found the login process satisfactory or better
97.1 found it straightforward, easy or very easy to get started
94.3% experienced satisfactory, fast or very fast page load times
Areas for improvement:
ACS login (22.9% expressed some concern)
More guidance needed (28.6%)
The RDF contains a lot of information but the planner allowed people to focus on areas relevant to them without being overwhelmed.
It made me consider aspects of my career and development I don't usually think of
Opportunity to think about the range of activities research involves and how I could prove that I can do them. Interesting to see full progression of career skills.
A valuable tool which helps to highlight the broad range of skills a researcher possesses
It looks great, could be really useful and could assist both myself and my supervisor in personal development planning.
Dr Emily McIntosh
Postgraduate Research Development Officer
I think the new version of the planner is much more interactive and useable for researchers. It will allow us to show off the RDF in a much more interactive way and I like the fact that it can be linked to the information we have locally.
